| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Cyrus caught sight of his brother Artaxerxes, whose person was revealed by the flight of his troops, when, maddened at once by rage and ambition, he shouted out, “I see the man!” and rushed at him with his handful of companions. Hurling his javelin at his brother, he wounded him in the breast, but was himself speedily overbourne by superior numbers and slain on the spot.” — Smith, 1882
